Track Listing and Artist Info…

1. Three Kings – Rudolph the Red nosed Reindeer: What do you get when you cross two Crucified Punks with a Metal Head? Three Kings! Three Kings is a side project featuring Greg Minier (The Cr ucified), Jim Chaffin (The Crucified), Mike Phillips (Deliverance and The Sacrificed). Hearing how good these three guys sound together here making their world debut makes you wonder, is this a one off track or will there be more to come? Only time will tell!

2.  False Idle – Christmas Tune: False Idle took the church hymns you grew up listening to and turned them in to punk rock masterpieces on the 2010 release, hymns of punk rock praise. In 2011 False Idle showed us that they have mad skills with original music to on the new “I Refuse” EP. And here we get a very special treat at what they can do with an old school Christmas tune!

3. Absolved – Christmas Tune: Absolved show us just how to mix a touch of that old school punk sound and combine it with just a touch of that youth filled angst and hardcore sound and they even throw in a little metal here and there! Top that off with a little sense of humor and you have Absolved! And when you listen to this 7″ you get to hear just what they can do to a classic Christmas tune available only here!

4. Flat Earth Policy – Christmas Tune: Hot off the press and straight from the Punk scene of Colorado we have Flat Earth Policy! Making their 7″ Christmas track debut! Here we get to hear what this up and coming punk band sounds like and they don’t disappoint!

HM Magazine Turns 35

In 1985, Doug Van Pelt photocopied a letter-sized sheets of paper, bound them together, and handed them out in person on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. It's all digital now, but, along the way, Van Pelt stirred up quite a few waves, played some seriously heavy music, and made a few friends along the way. Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.
